Dollar Days

I was going through my dollar stamps last night and thought of using these 3 neglected stamps that I got at Michael's sometime last year. I also wanted to use my scraps of patterned paper that are piling up.


It took me about 10 minutes to make all 3 cards... I think! I could have changed the layout of each card but I just wanted to create last night while watching Dancing with the Stars.

Nothing special with all 3 cards, again same layout, same card stocks, same patterned paper just different stamps but added charms on 2 cards.

Stamp: Dollar Stamps from Michaels

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Perfect Plum and Blush Blossom card stock from Stampin' Up Pattern Paper from Scrapbook Walls

Ink: Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Crystal Effects, stamping dimensional, Heart Charms and White Sheer Ribbon

These cards are just fabulous! And to think they're made with scraps and dollar stamps. Can't wait til I can start creating again. Almost totally moved in and just need to get unpacked. I might sneak in a card or two soon! ;)
